obama of the united states was helping to rest that. now we are, 18 months later, they burn the american flag in the streets, anti-american movements all over, killing u.s. ambassadors, attacks united states' embassies. where have we come in 18 months, and at the same time, the president of the united states rather than asserting america's leadership role in the world is off to campaign. lou: off to campaign, and mean while, some is public perception, and that is four more missiles fired by the iranians, seems that they have an unlimited number to show off whenever ahmadinejad makes a major appearance or makes a major point, and at the same time, we have the chinese with a vigorous space program underway, the russians, and the principle space power because they're the only ones who can routinely go into space to reach the international space station in lower earth orbit. it is a bizarre retreat of american power and technology and advancement and to hear that the very people who we have been, you know, so concerned about, ie, iranians, are seemingly carrying out an aggressive space polic
on a jet at j.f.k. but first from fox this thursday night. the united states is pulling more staffers from our embassy at libya for security reasons. that is what officials are telling fox news. they say the move is temporary and they hope to send the workers back next week. the u.s. cut the staff to emergency levels after the attack on the consul in benghazi. now fox news has learned that officials are calling it a terrorist attack within the first 24 hours, not one but two sources say investigators suspected a group with ties to al-qaeda was to blame. a few days later obama officials were still telling a different story. >> the best assessment we have today that in fact this was not a preplanned attack. that what happened initially it was a spontaneous reaction to what had transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> based on what we know now and knew at the time we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. >> shep: the day after that comment. jay carney said it is i think self-evident what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. he says the president agrees.
economy. that is why he united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> woodruff: but iran's president, mahmoud ahmadinejad, has long insisted that the country's nuclear program is only for peaceful purposes. and during his own speech yesterday, he denounced potential military action by israel. >> testing new generations of ultra-modern weaponry and the pledge to disclose these armaments in due time is now being used as a new language of threat against nations to coerce them into accepting a new era of hegemony. continued threats by the uncivilized zionists to resort to military action against our great nation is a clear example of this bitter reality. >> woodruff: earlier this week, iran unveiled a new long-range reconnaissance drone and the country's revolutionary guard said it tested new missiles as well. prime minister netanyahu noted that while international sanctions by the u.s. and other countries have hurt the iranian economy, they did not stop its nuclear program. >> there's only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs. a
communications they had. and if the united states state department and the country knew in advance of the attack that the ambassador felt like he was in danger of his death or imminent demise from al qaeda and we didn't take measures, that is aan appalling message to the ambassadors representing america. >> you requested them. can you subpoena the items? >> the committee can move forward and we talked to leadership of the committee. if they claim executive privilege and denies it, senator corcoran and i will pursue it. we think the american people, congress of the united states and the family of craig stevens deserve an answer and deserve it now. >> congressman, you have been in briefings about this. what do you make of the narrative that we have heard from administration officials about, well, it was linked to this video and it's still being investigated and we're not sure. now this reporting tonight and today that at least within the intelligence community in the first 24 hours they felt confident this was a terror attack? >> well, anderson, i don't think we can give this administration the be
, the question remains. should the united states have known this attack on the american ambassador was coming and did the administration lie about intelligence that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible for his death for the past two weeks? representative mac thornberry is "outfront" tonight. good to see you, sir. >> glad to be here. >> i know this is an issue you care a lot about. you've spent time in mali in the past. you've been briefed on the situation in benghazi. at that briefing, were you told that al-qaeda linked groups were responsible? >> we always have to be careful repeating what we're told in classified settings, but basically, we were told something that goes along with its consistent with what the administration was saying publicly an that was that was a upon tan yous mob, got out of hand and there wasn't consequences. doesn't make much sense if you look at common sense. the fact it was 9/11. the fact it was a highly organized attack. that's before you get into the evidence it just didn't really add up. >> i remember asking that night. people on our program. 9/11. it can't be
must address the issue. he says israel is in discussions with the united states regarding the path forward. he pushed for a red line to stop iran, which he says will have what it needs to build a nuclear weapon by next summer. of course, iran has claimed their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. the fox report's chief correspondent is work the united nations today. jonathan, prime minister binyamin netanyahu is portraying this essentially as a fight between good and evil. >>jonathan: he absolutely put iran in the evil bracket. he said the regime is essentially the face of radical islam and the iranian regime would like to return the world to medieval times and the rest of the world is aware that iran has been a global sponsor of terrorism. to the delegates inside the general assembly, he put a simple question. i ask you, given this record of iranian agression without nuclear weapons, imagine iranian aggression with nuclear weapons. imagine their long-range missiles tipped with nuclear warheads, their terror networks armed with atomic bombs. who among you would feel safe
, a nonstate membership to the united nations. the issue of palestinian state hood was championed in one of wednesday's most highly anticipated speeches, came from egypt. 's newly elected president and the former leader of the muslim brotherhood. he called on the united states to support palestinian rights just as it did the arab uprisings. >> just as you've support the revolution of the arab people, i call upon to you lend your support to the palestinians and their endeavor to regain the full and legitimate rights of people struggling to gain its freedom and establish his independent state. >> don't expect the white house to say much about this or other issues this could further strain relations with israel. the all-important jewish vote is already being put to the test. cnn's pop at this har slow in new york with a look at that impact. good morning. >> good morning, carol. well, we had an interesting night last night, we went to two home jewish families in new jersey to join them for their yom kip pup brepur break-fast. president obama got 78% of the jewish vote in 2008. mccain, 21% of
to move it the right way. it is time for the united states to lead. we didn't lead. we should have lead. after kioto it is time now nor the united states to team with china and lead us forward out of where we are and into a new responsibility as global citizens. the united states doesn't have to battle to lead the world. you are already leading. you have leaders who are emerging out there. this is a globalized world. keep doing what you are doing and believe in young people. believe in technology and science and have leaders like them lead the way. >> sit a marathon. not a sprint. i'm 37, i've done all the things you could possibly do with music and i never thought i would be able to do those things when i was in the ghetto or do the queen's jubilee or do this program. or beam the song back to the planet earth to educate kids to take an interest in stem. i'm dedicating my life to stem to create a new system with my little neighborhood to turn these kids into entrepreneur and educators. >> good for you. >> we are trying to inspire individuals and also to take our political system forward
? and for the united states to openly have no sense that it needed to provide the security to meet that potential threat. what does it say to you about al qaeda abilities in that region? >> first of all, with regards to benghazi, we responded to a request to provide a fast team to go into tripoli and provide additional security there, and we responded to that. at that point, for all intents and purposes, benghazi had been pretty much unoccupied by any of the diplomatic and other security personnel that were there. the main focus then was on tripoli and the embassy in tripoli, and that is what we responded to. with regards to al qaeda and its efforts in that area, i think it is fair to say that al qaeda, you know,ontinues, as i indicated, to try to pursue its efforts in that part of the world. we have been going after them in yen in. we have been going after them in somalia. we have been going after them in north africa. -- we have been going after them in yemen. they continue to be a threat in those areas. again, they continue to operate in different ways as well in other parts of africa. as to s
what communications they had leing up to september 11th, and, if, in fact, the united states state department knew in advance of the attack this ambassador felt like he was in danger of death or imminent demise from action and we didn't take action to secure him, that sends an appalling message to ambassadors aren't the world representing united states. >> if you requested them, can the committee subpoena the items if you don't get them? >> they can move forward and we have talked with members of the committee and the leadership. if the administration claims executive privilege or looks the other way we will continue to pursue it. we think the american people, the congress of the united states and certainly the family of craig stevens deserve an answer and deserve it now. >> you have been in briefings about this, what do you make about the narrative that we have heard from officials well it was linked to this video and it is still being investigated and we are not sure and today within the intelligence community, within the first 24 hours, they felt confident this was a terrorist a
minister benjamin netanyahu, calling on the united states and united nations to draw a clear red line on iran's nuclear program and former ambassador john bolton. also, shelby steele on how group and identity politics is shaping this presidential election. turning back to the president's so-called new economic patriotism, the polls and what we can expect over the final 40 days now until election day. clinton adviser, fox news political analyst, doug schoen. also, ed rollins, former reagan political director, it's good to have you with us weather thank you very much for having me. lou: let me start with this new theme. we can all agree that the president has a thing called forward i want to understand, if you will, the motto or mitt romney. this is a man ready to sell himself. you don't get to be president simply because you have a combination of democratic election. he has 30 days at this point in time. i would not mention the present. everyone knows this president has failed and nobody's going to google for this president thinking that he has been a great president. lou: i have never
: yes. i am listening to everybody talking. the woman earlier talking about people in the united states spending as much as they do, that is true. i worked in a diner. i see the spending and i see the waste. my business reflects on wall street. wall street reflects on my business. when the upper class is wealthy, the business trickles down. i am doing well. when people are holding onto their money, i do not do so well. it affects the small people more than the bigger people. host: what do you do? caller: a server. host: what are the tips like? caller: they are not like they used to be. the spending is not the same. these are everyday people. these are not luxury items. they need at a diner to spend some time with the children. there is no time. it is not like this is porter house or something like that. this is a hamburger type of place. regarding our spending, i live alone. i do spend more. i believe the gas price reflects on everything. the cost of everything has gone up. as a result of the increase in gas price. i take public transportation and i still pay more. that goes up as well.
united states assistance packages focused on developing the institutions of liberty, the rule of law and property rights. >> we believe that freedom and self-determination are not unique to one culture. isn't that simply american values or western values? they are universal values. and even as there will be huge challenges to come, i am convinced that ultimately, government is for the people, by the people. it is more likely to bring about the stability, prosperity and individual opportunity to serve as a basis for peace and our world. >> a october 3, mitt romney and president obama will meet in their first presidential debate, moderate. watch on c-span. your reaction, calls, e-mails and tweets after the debate. follow online at >> george washington university hosted a discussion yesterday on oil and gas production in the persian gulf. focusing mostly iraq. they speak about tensions between saudi arabia and iran. -- for the fall semester. and i would just mention in the way of an advertisement that we will be having our next program on october 23. it will be on jordan. jo
. and i should say this too. the israeli prime minister, before embarking to the united states, made remarks briefly yesterday on the holiest day, right before the holiest day in the jewish calendar, yom kippur. he said this speaking about mahmoud ahmadinejad speaking at the united nations on that very same day. and i quote. on this day when we pray to be inscribed to the book of life a platform was given to a dictatorial regime who tries at every step to sentence us to death. it is position of the israeli prime minister if not stopped iran will developed enriched-uranium that could be used to make a bomb as early as spring of 2013. we expect him to elaborate on that in just the next few moments. megyn. megyn: david lee miller, thank you so. there was, as we've always heard from iran some bellicose language from its leader in the united nations. israel will have the chance to respond after mr. netanyahu speaks, we will be joined live right here for reaction and perspective by general jack keane and ambassador john bolton. don't miss it. busy afternoon. >> the cost of food is up. the
a reason for the president of the united states to lie to the american people? >> kimberly: no, there is not. in this particular situation it was glay grant. flagrant. if their lips are moving, they're lying. shameful behavior and weakened our position overseas internationally. people do not fear and respect the united states now because they know we will not act on it. we will instead do the 2012 apology tour. frankly, the american people are over it. it's outrageous that they lied. repeatedly over and over again. despite direct evidence to the contrary. >> eric: i want to get to you. i know you want to respond to that. andrea, immediately after, we said are they that dumb? do they think we're that dumb? what was it? they're that dumb, we're that dumb? >> andrea: they know the media won't cover them the way they'd cover republican president. but they haven't been forthcoming and they should be when it comes to terror. remember after september 11, rudy giuliani set up every day and told the truth. this tells me one or two things this year. either the president didn't do this jo
the problem sometimes in the united states is they say "how do we deal with the arab spring? there's no way to quantify that because for each country it means something different. >> jon: i think we like to have the idea-- arrogantly so-- that we are in control of this process. the argument we have is "how could you let the brotherhood come to power in egypt, obama?" as though obama could go "i should have rigged that differently." (laughter) we have a sense that somehow we can control these events but even in that region, i imagine, there's a great deal of nervousness amongst the general ruling parties that have been-- you know, saudi arabia probably looks at jordan to see how you're doing. >> well, again, everybody country is looking at everybody else. but you've got to remember that arab spring started with a young man that burned himself and died because of the economy and arab spring started because of the economy as the whole world has s reacting to the economy. you had wall street over here and then it went from economic frustration to politics. young men throughout the middle east--
time to talk. to your point the united states administration said we still think there is still an opportunity for diplomacy. what you heard from prime minister netanyahu today is that israel is not going to act unilaterally. they are, they feel they are in concert with the u.s. policy at this time. and that they feel that there is a need for the world. he spoke in global terms that the threat that it poses. it will spark an arms race to make the middle east totally tender box for terrorist. >> bret: judge? >> i thought the prime minister netanyahu made a brilliant and compelling, very, very scary case for containing iran. but i disagree with juan. he damned the president with the faint praise. it's obvious he doesn't want the president re-elected. obama has approval rating in the single digit in streets of tel aviv and jerusalem. i take a little different approach here. israel is a sovereign country. it doesn't need the approval of any international body to defend itself. if iranian use of nuclear weapons on israel is imminent under principles of the just war and international
and in some cases, our interests are actually mutual with the united states and iran, so i think it is an important country without -- i think they've had a problem for many, many years with the west. particularly with the united states. where they believe, whether it's true or not, but they believe that the u.s. is out to get them. out to destroy the regime and overthrow the regime. even this recent delisting of the opposition group that was in iraq, claim is another example of the u.s. only interested in changing the regime. we have many, many issues between the u.s. and iran over the 30 years, the nuclear age has gotten to the point now where we have harsh, harsh sanctions hurting the people, the economy, everyone. probably not the regime so much. >> not as tough as they should, at least fm our reporting. if you were really trying to shut things down. >> well, they're not that lenient. i think people find a way to get around. >> leaky. >> sorry. but i think that right now, with these sanctions, iran would like to come kind of f agreement with the west, but they want sanctions
experience, i mean, right before that, with due respect to the president of the united states, he just had a couple in the united states senate and state legislator. i don't think that there is a material difference in experience on that front because the governor is chief executive of a state but also commander in chief. you have direct experience with how military works and bain capital covers the globe. you understand how international markets work. i think you can certainly pick out deficiency on the governor's side from the stand point of foreign policy. but understanding both markets and again, the political of having one branch under control and accountablity of that. >> steve: you know what governors do because you did in in south carolina. thank you for joining us. >> brian: coming up, keep your kid no, sir school or lose your welfare benefits. we'll debate it. >> steve: ladies, talking about the convertible high heel. >> brian: finally. >> steve: look at that. genious. ♪ then and i saw her face. i am a believer. ♪ and not a trace. a doubt in my mind. ♪ im in love. releas
've been talking this week about red lines that he doesn't want iran to cross before the united states would be involved in military action. i think he's going to lay out what his red lines are and to say to the world, listen, this is a crisis that the whole world has to deal with. i think this is seen as his final warning that if we done see movement on this issue, israel will have to act. >> i want to talk about the iranian president. i'll let you first eat a little crow. you made a prediction that was wrong. >> i thought -- i said yesterday on this show that i thought ahmadinejad would kind of go for broke, kamikaze in his last u.n. general assembly. instead, he talked about, you know, this new world order that he sees when the world powers would have less influence. but he wasn't as fiery. he didn't mention israel by name. i think a lot of people were surprised. in the statements he was saying leading up to this appearance he was much more fiery. i think in addition to ban ki-moon, the u.n. secretary general asking him to tone it down, i think maybe the supreme leader in iran said
night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel under the bus." he also said on "60 minutes" over the weekend that the president made a mistake by not meeting with netanyahu. the next family we met with certainly agrees,ays the president still has time to meet with netanyahu. here is their position on u.s./israeli relations. >> he has a problem on his hands of major, major proportions, he needs some help. i think that president obama has not given him any help. >> michael, you're nodding. >> i agree. the possibility of iran developing nuclear weapons capab
mahmoud ahmadinejad stood in the same spot. he lashed out against israel and the united states. >> translator: the current abysmal situation of the world and history due mainly to the wrong management of the world and the self-proclaimed centers of power who have entrusted themselves to the devil. bill: david lee miller now is live at the u.n. and what can we expect to hear from the israeli prime minister after he left israel late yesterday? david lee, good morning there. >> reporter: good morning, bill. it is expect the by many that israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu will essentially put forth the argument where the red line should be for military action against iran if in the eyes of israel and its allies that country continues to try to enrich enough uranium sufficient to make a nuclear bomb. netanyahu reacted earlier to the speech yesterday by mahmoud ahmadinejad, the iranian president, who spoke on the holiest day of the jewish year, yom kippur. the israeli prime minister said and i quote him, on this day we pray to be inscribed in the book life a platform was given
the industry gets embedded here in the united states. more of the wind energy development in republican districts is present. 81% of the wind energy development is in republican districts. so don't you think there could be bipartisan support for the production tax credit? >> there is in the senate -- senator grassley, senator moran and senator brown have been supportive. what is the production tax credit do for rural communities? it is a cash crop that's predictable every year. most of the wind blows in agricultural areas. we also have manufacturing states like yours in the midwest that are dying to regain a manufacturing footing and so again, i just -- this is -- beyond tone-deaf on the part of the romney campaign. let me say one other thing the wind industry doesn't expect to have the subsidy forever. they want it phased out. but it is a fledgling industry. it needs these incentives. they've been helpful in building our manufacturing base back to where we want it to be. >> jennifer: you personally have been testifying
